City and Colour – acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green – has announced The Hurry and The Harm will be made available tomorrow, April 9, as a pre-order on iTunes.  The Hurry and The Harm will be offered to purchase as a standard as well as deluxe version.  Three bonus tracks (a new original song, “The Way It Used To Be,” as well as acoustic versions of “Of Space and Time” and “Harder Than Stone”) will be a part of the deluxe version. All pre-orders will include an immediate download of the first single, “Thirst.” Physical bundles of the album will also be made available in the coming weeks at cityandcolour.com. Released to critical acclaim, Paste Magazine calls “Thirst,” “…shocking in its honesty as it depicts the gritty pain of heartbreak among bluesy yet dramatic beats.” The official lyric video for the single is available to view here.

Recorded at Nashville, Tennessee’s Blackbird Studios during the fall/winter of 2012, the new album was produced once again by Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, Death Cab for Cutie and The Mars Votla). In addition to Green, the album features Jack Lawrence on bass (The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather), Bo Koster on keys (My Morning Jacket), Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Fiona Apple) and James Gadson (Bill Withers, BB King) on drums and Spencer Cullum Jr (Caitlin Rose) on pedal steel.

The Hurry and The Harm is Green’s fourth release as City and Colour and follows 2011’s Little Hell, which received widespread critical and commercial praise. The album debuted at #1 on Canada’s Top 200 Chart, #28 in the U.S., #2 in Australia and top 40 in the U.K. and went on to be certified RIAA Platinum in Canada and RIAA Gold in Australia. Moreover, Spin magazine asserts, “Just as his piercing voice and languid tunes echo Neil Young’s rustic side, a Neil-like tough-mindedness runs through Green’s stark meditations,” while NPR’s “World Café” praises, “blends folk, country and blues to create a mood designed to commiserate and uplift.”

City and Colour will embark on an eight-week U.S. tour this fall, beginning in Northampton at the Calvin Theatre on September 13 and ending in Detroit at The Fillmore on November 8.  Tickets will go on sale this Friday, April 12, with a pre-order available tomorrow (April 9) beginning at 12 p.m. (local time) at cityandcolour.com.  As a special thank you to the band’s loyal live following, all tickets come with a digital download of the new album upon release date. Ticket purchasers will also receive an immediate digital download of the unreleased, exclusive track “Northern Wind (Live from Molson Canadian Amphitheatre—Sept 2012).”  The shows will feature a brand new touring band including Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Hacienda, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys.  Upcoming tour dates for all shows are listed below.
